_**Bruce Willis stars in Shyamalan’s supernatural drama/mystery**_
A child psychologist (Bruce Willis) tries to help a boy (Haley Joel Osment) who has a unique problem (or gift) and is called a “freak” by his peers. Olivia Williams plays the wife of the therapist and Toni Collette the mother of the boy.
Written & directed by M. Night Shyamalan, “The Sixth Sense” (1999) was his breakout film. It’s a slow-burn drama with paranormal elements. When my wife & I first saw it we didn’t know anything about the story except everyone was raving about it; and the ending really does elicit a ‘Wow’ response.
Seeing it again, I was wondering if the movie works if you know the big reveal and it does. While the drama’s a little tedious, it’s refreshing compared to modern blockbusters with their idiotic explosions every five minutes. Furthermore, the film is aesthetically pleasing, which is helped by the unique locations (Philadelphia & areas nearby). Lastly, it is interesting to view the flick to see how Shyamalan was able to successfully hide the twist.
The movie runs 1 hour, 47 minutes.
The Sixth Sense phenomenon.
Child psychiatrist Malcolm Crowe takes on the case of a deeply troubled boy named Cole Sear. At first Cole is reluctant to be helped, but as Malcolm gets closer to the boy, Malcolm learns the root of Cole’s fears, he claims he sees ghosts.
The Sixth Sense was a monster hit back in 1999, a deftly crafted ghost story with a kicker that was talked about by all and sundry, the box office bulged and the critics did rave. Nowadays you will find hundreds of people proclaiming that the film is boringly formulaic, that they worked out the film’s premise easily in the first quarter of the film, or that the film is a mere cliché, funny how I don’t remember it like that back in 1999! The box office bulged because many went to see the film more than once, they went (myself included) back to see just how director M. Night Shyamalan (Academy Award Nominated Best Director) managed to bluff us and pull the rug from under our feet. I remember vividly both times I saw it in the cinema, the crucial turning point of the piece bringing a collective audible gasp from the viewers sunken in their respective seats, that’s the sort of impact that carries a film’s reputation far and wide, and that’s the reason why I will never rate the film lower than 10/10.
Repeat viewings of The Sixth Sense obviously dim its star appeal because we know the tricks of the directors trade, but the film still ranks to me as one of the best of its type for so many other reasons rarely mentioned. The writing from Shyamalan (Academy Award Nominated Best Screenplay) is surprisingly complex, the piece masquerading as a horror picture is emotionally charged, linking children with the paranormal through loss and a need for understanding, the need for closure of unresolved differences, but chiefly and crucial to the film’s heart is the message of connection before it’s too late.
The performances are incredible, Bruce Willis as Malcolm Crowe is perfectly understated, all the pointers for the denouement are there for us to see, but such is the actors performance, and we now know he is cutely having to play his cards close to his chest, are hidden from us until the revisit of the picture reveals it all. Hayley Joel Osment (Academy Award Nominated Best Supporting Actor) is wonderful, for a child performance in a film of this type to not be over sentimental, is quite an achievement. Sympathetic Cole may be, but Osment never lets it become less than the accepted level of child vulnerability. Rounding out the great trio of leads is Toni Collette (Academy Award Nominated Best Supporting Actress) as Cole’s mother, Lynn, fabulous in portraying the love and confusion in Cole’s troubled world, this story arc between the two is expertly realised. The direction from Shyamalan is very restrained, forgoing out and out shock value for periods of disquiet, he uses sounds to make the audience sense the unease unfolding in this creepy tale, while his camera work, full of draw ins and pull outs-and subtle side shifts, is adroitly in tone with the narrative. The score from James Newton Howard flits beautifully between the uneasy periods and the sustained moments of query, while Tak Fujimoto’s cinematography puts a gorgeous funereal texture over this part of Philadelphia.
If you haven’t seen it then don’t believe the naysayers, because The Sixth Sense deserved every penny/cent it made, its a wonderful, creepy, and yes, at times, a beautiful picture. A film that still ranks as one of the best ghost stories ever crafted. 10/10
The Sixth Sense is one of those films that rarely happens these days. In other words, I knew so little about it before sitting in the cinema that it wasn’t ruined before it started.
I don’t want to ramble on about it so I’ll just say… absolute perfection. An incredible story that had me and my friends gripped from start to finish. The twist in the tale was totally unexpected as well.
After it finished we sat through the whole of the credits and talked about how fabulous it was. If only more films were like this. I can’t remember the last time we did that!
Congratulations to all involved in this masterpiece.
Still Very Good Even When You Know The Ending
This was hyped big-time when it came out and, if memory serves me, was a good conversation piece among those who saw it at the theater.
I didn’t see it for a few years afterward, on tape and now on DVD. It was very good but I didn’t find it as “the greatest movie ever” as some did. It is an involving story, however, and I’ve come to appreciate it more with multiple viewings. I’ve seen it three times, the last one looking for mistakes to disprove the surprise ending….but couldn’t find any. The filmmakers covered their tracks. However, a couple of scenes were misleading. Those who have seen this movie know what I’m talking about. For those who haven’t, I’m not going to spoil it here.
I enjoyed both Bruce Willis and Haley Joel Osment as the two leads. Willis has had many action-packed, profane macho roles in his career but I like him best when he’s low key, as he is in here (and in “Unbreakable,” to name another fairly-recent movie) The story is slow-paced but it sure is not boring. In a way, it’s nice to see a slower-paced film be a big hit, as this was.
Osment, meanwhile, is a terrific child actor, as he has proved in other films. He’s simply one of the best of his young generation. He and Dakota Fanning are the two best child actors I’ve seen in many years.
This isn’t just some supernatural-horror movie. It’s a nice human interest story. There is one scene late in the movie in which Osment’s mom is having a talk with her young boy in the car. It is an extremely touching scene that brings tears – a great moment in the film.
